“When you hear the words from him about what it’s doing for his young airmen and morale, that’s everything we’re all about,” Ron Sites, executive director of Fighter Country Partnership said. “We’re all about enhancing that quality of life and doing everything we can to support this mission here at Luke.”
Fry’s Food Stores is happy to announce another fun Courageous Hearts pin-up fundraising campaign, honoring our heroes. This campaign will take place January 29, 2017 and will run through February 26, 2017. Fighter Country Foundation once again has proudly been selected as one of the recipients to receive funding from this campaign in addition to USO AZ, AZ Heroes to Hometowns, and Packages from Home.
1) Please visit your local Fry’s Food Store to buy a heart to help support our United States military personnel, retirees, veterans, and their families!
2) Purchase 20 (or more) hearts to show your support. Dedicate your Heart to someone in uniform – past or present – or to a military family!
3) Snap a selfie with you and the heart then email to: email@example.com and share up on Facebook and Twitter #frysfoodstores #courageoushearts Pssst..there may be an incentive to getting absolutely ridiculous with the number of hearts purchased and taken in a single photo with you and shared up with the aforementioned instructions…

I’d like to share a story about a person I met a few weeks ago. I was at a local restaurant about to have lunch when an older gentleman came up to me and introduced himself. I was wearing a Fighter Country Partnership polo and he noticed (and liked) the logo. I invited him to sit down and I proceeded to tell him about Fighter Country Partnership and what we do to support Luke Air Force Base. He mentioned that he had served in the Air Force back in the 1970s and that his grandson was currently stationed at Luke.
